The Vista with stairs that gently descend to the Hudson River was modeled on Italy’s Villa D’Este where the stairs cascade down to Lake Como.
The Temple of Love offers stellar views of the Hudson River and looks lovely from just about every angle.
It’s worth exploring the nooks and crannies of the magnificent outcrop that’s capped with the grand Temple of Love.
